majelle, pronounced ma-j'elle

majelle, pronounced ma-j'elle: a slightly interesting teenage girl who's exactly like everyone else. I paint, write, and read too much. struggling to find her place on this planet, and a purpose with art and creative yabs. a introvert who is awkward, not really outgoing, and rather quirky.
what i wore to part one of a harry potter marathon. i think i’ll have to up my luna game for round two tomorrow. it’s so hot (yes, it gets hot in canada!) so being comfy n relaxing in my friends cool basement all day rocks. my glasses are uv protected and yes i may have worn them out a few times. the coolest thing about my outfit is that i woke up the night before in the middle of my sleep (not the middle of the night, since this summer i’ve been such a night owl) and planned it all. layers on layers. channeled my inner luna.

This dress is bought off the Depop app and if you look in my previous post about buying online, the picture looks like a mustard yellow. Not mad. Just will do a lot of things for a mustard yellow dress. Which is odd since I don’t even like mustard.

everyone went fishing except for my friend rylee and i so of course we both got comfy and read for a few hours. red rising is so far a great book, and she was glued to catcher in the rye all day so i’m assuming it’s great as well! this was a sneak attack photo but accidentally wasn’t on silent.

my allergies are protesting my day spent at talon chutes, a place in which you jump of cliffs in northern ontario. getting there is extremely difficult, my coworkers and i complained the entire hike, but as soon as we saw the view it was comical how we stopped and just were filled with awe. too much of a scardey-cat to jump off anything, my friend grabbed me and pulled me off the little one. really glad he did because if you’re scared, having someone there makes this a million times better. when my coworkers left i had my friends come and the in between part where i was alone with this view was so empowering. life thoughts about diversity and individuality. my way home was a canoe ride that too much long than suppose to because adventurous people tend to do that. still in wonder.

Ahhh. We don’t have views like this in Holland. I can imagine how inspiring this must be, so jealous!

Also just needed to reblog this for the part where you talked about how you were there alone. Someone once said “happiness is only real when shared” and I took it as a real insult. And mostly as a sign that they’re really retarted and I felt sorry for them because they have no clue what life can truly be. It’s these moments that you talk about that can give you new power, that can change you, that can make you do new things and decide to be brave. I have moments when I’m alone that are realer than anything. How can that happiness not be real when it’s so powerful? I can just imagine EXACTLY how you felt because I’ve felt that way before. And it’s the best, most inspiring feeling ever. And the best part is that you don’t need anyone around you to feel like that. It’s such a real, powerful feeling of being in awe and I feel so sorry that some people have never felt it before and think it doesn’t exist. Oh well. We’ll enjoy it for as long as we can, let the stupid people think whatever ^.^

the amount of right you are! people need to understand that being by your lonesome, like sitting in bed all day or going for a hike by yourself, can be the happiness time! introverts unite

had the best haul day and worst actual day. thrift store frames and mirror cost me $5.80, and my two canvases and gold paint $4.25. my room converted art gallery project is coming along so nicely! the negatives was that because it was raining, carrying all that to my car and unlocking the door had me drenched, and my cat knocked over a bowl of cereal crumbs all over my bed. so close to happiness.

Anonymous asked: Why would you go to Alaska?

Alaska is known as ‘the land beyond the gods’ in the Percy Jackson books series, and I can’t help think but that is the coolest thing. Their powers aren’t there to manipulate anything. What controls Alaska is itself, it’s free! Then of course, there are the mountains. Huge, hikeable wonders with snowy caps. Also, the coolest thing is that Alaska has periods of really dark months because of their location, where it just looks like night all the time, and vise versa. The water is really clean there and the wildlife is flourishing. 

Biggest reason of them all? Looking for my Great Perhaps, a phrase I found in a book about ‘Alaska’.

Not sure if I bought the right gold, but here’s my goal (slight rhyme points). Sundays are the worst days to find a pinterest idea since everything was closed or closed in an hour. Ran to the mall to find more than four people I knew who I talked to until the mall was closed. Wal mart is a saviour since it never really closes. The mirror I spray painted (in the top photo above) cost only 20$, and was something I figured would be hard to thrift so it was okay to splurge. One of the most expensive local thrift stores was open and I picked out a few frames, but listened to my dad’s advice (and impatience) and left all my items at the cash since the line up was too long.

Tomorrow I plan on really getting everything together. I want to personalize the silhouette idea with one of me, and one of a dragon. And paint a chalk board alaska on the wall. This little pinterest turned big quick.

want to win a chance to go to the premiere so here’s a picture of me reading #TheGiver ! read it before the movie comes out to have your imagination make the characters, not the casting directors 🌾

my family reunion gave me a shocking reminder of my love for animals. everyone is growing up, we see our family once a year for a few days of a reunion at a campground one of my distant cousins owns, and because of that I forget how much time passes. I was waiting for everyone to bring their dogs and have them play like every other year, but this year I was sourly reminded that dogs get old, like people, and die. such an unfortunate thing, since dogs tend to be cooler than people. this brings me all to my dog, dakota. she’s getting old herself, she’s death and sometimes is too tired for walks now. but this entire weekend she was pipped up and running around and making sure to ask every single relative for their burger. I love seeing her like this. I never want to see her go, ah. my sister and her boyfriend (in the picture above!) had to go for a wedding half way through the day, but dakota made sure I wasn’t alone.

Anonymous asked: what happened to carjella?

it’s on a hiatus, carly was too young and her parents were really against it because of that fact (which is totally understandable). but it’s not like we gave up, we’re just giving it time until we can have a more realistic chance with raising the funds to actually fly all of us to alaska. life sort of got in the way of the time and effort it takes for all of us to constantly make videos and create and ship art was really harder than you’d think. we’re still all great friends, and talk and share art on to each other on kik! i even went as far as meeting michelle in amsterdam on my eurotrip, and a drive to meet kyla and carly could be in the cards too. so yeah, i want it back, but not yet. 

edit: for those of you who don’t know what carjella is, it’s a project me and three online artists created. we banded together with an online store full of our art and made weeklyish youtube videos for more of a recognition. the goal was to raise funds to meet each other on a spectacular trip to homer, alaska. 

we are michelle, kyla, and carly
